Court News Ohio reports that the Ohio Supreme Court is already testing its new e-filing portal with a pilot project involving a subset of 85 lawyers who regularly file documents with the Court. In addition to online access, the portal provides an online user guide and Administrative Order, plus links to the Court's online docket and Rules of Court.
A full lanuch for all attorneys who practice before the Supreme Court is planned for early 2015. There are also a couple of specific guidelines that the Court is observing for its beta test:
"Filing documents through the e-Filing Portal does not alter any filing deadlines imposed by the Rules of Practice of the Supreme Court of Ohio.
Documents received after 5 p.m. Eastern Time through the e-Filing Portal will not be considered for filing until the next business day."
